[8 weeks done][Song of the week] 비 Yourself Open Thread for 12/6 – 12/12.

» You can visit the previous Open Thread HERE. And of course, don’t forget that our Cloud USA Forum is a most excellent place for Rain love, fan communication, and self-expression.

By the way — have you left a message for JiHoon on The Cloud today?

» Our Project page for newbies on how to register for and USE the Official Cloud Rain Fan Club site in S.Korea is HERE.)

PLEASE keep spreading the word so that the Yellow Ribbon for Rain Brigade continues to grow and grow. It’s nearly at 4000 ribbons!

You can see Private JiHoon’s first letter to his Clouds and fans HERE, in our previous post. ♥

For information on where to write JiHoon presently, please go to our information post HERE.

An FYI: We’ve seen some pictures of soldiers in the Key Unit out for a night hike (none of those pictures included JiHoon) and I’m here to tell you—they were bundled up in a lot of heavy layers, so they are cold but nobody is freezing, and the trays they were eating off of were HUGE and were PILED with food. So nobody’s starving, either. Thought you all might like to know that. It’s all the exercise that has trimmed JiHoon down so much, not to mention his own personal exercise that he’s doing on the side (jogging and such). He’s burning that food off like a crazy man! 🙂

News should be coming through any day now that he’s completely done with basic training. Glory halleluia!

» Go HERE to read the latest on The Yellow Ribbon for Rain Calendar, slated to be JiHoon’s Christmas gift this year.

SONG OF THE WEEK (you can also find this video to your right, at the very top of our media blog sidebar): “Biggest Thing”, off of Rain’s Vol. 3 It’s Raining album (2004). Video courtesy of miisukehiro @YT.

Rain is Eternal. Where clouds stay gathered, rain will always come. It is inevitable.

  1. Well it seems there’s a bit of controversy brewing in Seoul, Korea regarding some new apt. buildings and the design resembling the Twin Towers. Check out the below article.

  4. Stephe I can’t get the 3rd list to pull up on the cloud site to see if my name is on it. Can you please check for me? I would greatly appreciate it. Also please forgive I’ve not been around it seems I’m having some health issues (nothing to serious) and home repairs and remodeling done. It just seems I’ve been a little rude lately and off my game, please except my apologies ALL… I love you all and miss our fun conversation and I’m hoping in a few months I’ll be back to normal. MUAH sisters

    • Hi, gurl. It doesn’t seem like you’re being rude or anything, just busy, like most of us. No apologies necessary! 🙂 Feel better soon.

      I did see a Jules Thomas (Argentina) on the 3rd list the other day. I assumed that was you…

        • If your street name is Duval, then it’s you and we simply need to report that the “nationality” field is wrong. I suggest you email me all of the information that you put in your form, so that we can verify if it is you or not. (letitrain@cloudusa.org) So long as you filled out your address fields properly, your goods should get to you no matter what the “nationality” field says. I do know that “Argentina” was the default nationality in the form, and that it had to be physically changed to USA in a drop down menu, or it would remain “Argentina.”

          As far as my responses not reaching your phone, I have no idea. I have checked the blog and everything is set properly.

      I knew something was up, because too much time has passed by since I’ve seen that purple lotus blossom icon Miss Lady. I do understand and hope you get to feeling better. I echo Stephe’s message that we all know what busy looks like, so again I understand totally. Health and Home ALWAYS take precedent, no matter what. “See” you soon.(SMILES)

  6. Awwww I miss that hairstyle!!! Waaaahhhhh!!!!! *wimpers* *hiccups* *sighhhh* Regarding Rain’s weight I think he looks yummie!! He must be a lot stronger than before if that’s possible and I can’t wait for him to show those abs again!! Men gets it soo easy when it comes to loose weight! They do some cardio, weight and they are good. Women have hormones, pregnancy and we eat a bit and gain like 10 pounds in a week!! No fair!! Oh, I just ended a kdrama called The woman who want to marry with Kim Bum and is AWESOME!!! Is the perfect romantic drama for women and love every minute of it!! 😀

Lol!! Kim did soo good in Boys over Flowers that I became a fan. I think my next drama to watch will be Dream were he do the character of a boxer. I wanna see his action skills! I think kim Bum and Lee Min Ho are very talented actors and can do well in the future. They both sing too, their voices are georgeous. I love My everything by Lee Min Ho and I’m going to meet you now by Kim Bum. They are from BOF and are sooo beautiful!!

  8. I think the only time Rain gets super skinny is when he is doing heavy training or on a restrictive diet like boot camp or when he did Ninja Assassin. I’m not worried about him, it is natural for his body to change during boot camp. Clouds just like to worry over him and feed him because he loves to eat and we hurt at the thought of him ever going hungry again. Our Jihoon earns the respect of everyone around him.

  9. You know, men in general burn more calories than women do (especially those that excercise regularly) so I’m not surprised by anything regarding Ji-Hoon’s weight…zero. If I thought, he was being abused or something, then That would be different. Besides it does the military no good to have a bunch of starved to death soldiers. How can you defend your country…hungry. Yeah, they’re eating. Thank you for the updates! (SMILES)

    • BiA,

      Yeah. I remember in an interview one time he was asked if he had trouble with gaining weight? I remember he just looked at the interviewer like he/she was an alien and laughed and said, “Um…no.” It was like he was thinking, ‘Seriously? Wow…I wish…’

      I have a feeling he’s one of those tall and skinny fellows, who has trouble keeping weight ON. I mean, think about it. Look at him when he was 16, right? Can anyone say 90-lb weakling? LOL.

      I also remember him whining about how he didn’t think he’d EVER have a chest–and remember how amazed he was when the Ninja Assassin trainers actually managed to help him develop one.

      My nephew is a naturally tall and skinny fellow too. So, I’m really wondering how he will look when he gets home on the 18th of this month, after a few weeks away at HIS boot camp. I imagine he also will have lost quite a bit of weight.

      And now I’m sitting here pouting ’cause I didn’t get the tall & skinny gene that all of the men in my family have. I can just look at potatoes and gain 10 pounds. How bloody fair is THAT. O_o

      Terri :-}

      • Tell me about it. Im just eating once a day and instead of losing wait i have gain like 20-30 pounds. It’s that even fair? Nope. Unfortunately we are women and we were design with the idea in mind that we need to storage fat in our hips, breast and abds in case something bad happens and we are not able to get food for a baby. CRazyyyyyy.

      • Ha! I know about tall and skinny. Hubbie was skinny when we first met and he was in the Navy. He went to the service as an 18 yr. old with a 28 inch waist. He made it through boot camp and subsequently life thereafter. His age and weight are now in sync with one another. So no doubt Bi’s ok as well. Honestly, I’ve never seen Bi as a “skinny” man. When he was teen maybe, but as a man? I know one thing, Ji-Hoon has thighs and a booty and there is ‘NUTIN’ skinny about either area on him. I think some people (not all) are freaking out needlessly. Yeah, men seriously irk me with the ability to shed unwanted pounds in record time. I hate’em! (SMILES)

      • Oh one more thing. What people also seem to forget is for the fellas who are skinnier than the others, they have access to gym equipment and can lift weights/pump iron when they have free time and ultimately add some bulk to their frame. Hubbie did that too! So never fear the weight fluctuations, it’s par for the course.

  11. Now we know that he used to eat very often. Cuz he has always done exercise but now that he is in training he has gotten really slim.
    Thanks for the info about Lee Dong-geon who is almost done with his military duty. He and Rain did an awesome job in Sang-Do. They both almost kill me with the bathroom scene after Sang-Do slept in at doc’s apartment. LOL everytime i remember that scene i can’t stop laughing.
